Thought it might be a fuel system problem so booked it in to an independent VW/Audi specialist. They replaced all 4 coil packs and plugs. It's perfect now. Anyone else suffered coil pack...

    Sound disappeared from Android Auto Google Maps turn-by-turn?

    When navigating with Google Maps, she says, for example, "navigating to home" but then there is no further audio.

    Why does my car have a camera in the windscreen?

    Hi, New Member here. I've just bought a 16 reg A4 Avant Sport 1.4 150 with 16,000 miles. I noticed the camera in the windscreen and wondered what it is used for, as I don't seem to have the auto-dipping headlight option?
